Description: Centella asiatica, commonly known as centella, Asiatic pennywort or Gotu kola, is a herbaceous, frost-tender perennial plant in the flowering plant family Apiaceae. It is native to wetlands in Asia. It is used as a culinary vegetable and as a medicinal herb. Traditionally used in the management of dermatological conditions in its native area, it is used to support faster healing of small wounds, scratches and superficial burns, as well as an anti-inflammatory for eczema, minor itching and insect bites.
Health Benefits of centella asiatica:
The skin and health benefits of centella asiatica are the sum of its four main active ingredients: asiatic acid, madecassic acid, madecassoside and asiaticoside. Its active constituents have regulating and activating functions, acting on the collagen present in many organs. In skin, the major components are collagens type I and II. Skin aging is related mainly to a decrease in type I collagen levels, which also plays a major role in wound healing. Studies have shown that the main constituents of Centella asiatica (Asiatic acid, madecassic acid, and asiaticoside) increase collagen synthesis. In addition to stimulating the synthesis of collagen, it also improves tensile strength of the skin.

Prevents Hair Loss
Gotu kola lowers stress and free radicals, which are known to cause hair loss. For healthier hair growth, apply a mixture of Centella Asiatica, aloe vera, Eclipta alba (false daisy), Ocimum sanctum (holy basil), and Emblica Officinalis (Amla).
Speeds Wound Healing
Saponins and other organic compounds found in gotu kola stimulate the healing process at the site of wounds. By stimulating blood flow to the cells and protecting against infections, it can rapidly speed the healing process.
Boosts Circulation
Gotu kola actually plays two important roles in the circulatory system. Firstly, the plant extract can protect and strengthen the walls of blood vessels and capillaries, which prevents blood leakage and optimizes the circulatory system. Secondly, it stimulates the flow of blood, which increases oxygenation in different parts of the body and important organ systems. This also alleviates problems caused due to poor blood circulation such as swelling, leg heaviness, and pain.
Treats Psoriasis
Gotu kola can inhibit skin cell reproduction.
Prevents Thrombosis
Gotu kola prevents blood clotting. Therefore it cures thrombosis, which is blood clotting in the blood vessels.
Gotu kola has anti-inflammatory properties which fight the bacterial infections. It also helps in reducing the swelling and pain caused by inflammation.
Cures Stomach Ulcers
Asiaticoside present in gotu kola acts as an anti-gastric ulcer drug. It increases cell healing and reduces the ulcers.
Treats Anxiety & Depression
Gotu kola can have a positive effect on anxiety issues as it lowers the stress hormone, cortisol, and increases serotonin and dopamine levels. It effectively decreases the frequency and severity of anxiety attacks and episodes in a group of subjects who suffered from some form of GAD (General Anxiety Disorder). The anti-inflammatory properties of this herb can lower the signs of depression and despair. It is also known to enhance spirituality, thus, sometimes referred to as the ‘Herb of Enlightenment’.
Boosts Cognition
Gotu kola extract has a positive impact on the circulatory system, thereby oxygenating more of the brain and allowing cognition to improve. The antioxidant effects of this herb are also somewhat responsible, as they can stimulate neural pathways by eliminating plaque and free radicals from the brain.
Prevents Nervous Disorders
Gotu kola has an anxiolytic activity which helps relieve stress, enhance mood, and induce sleep, thereby calming the nervous system. For those who suffer from disorders like epilepsy, it can have a powerful effect on the quality of life and the severity of the conditions if taken regularly.
Improves Memory
The gotu kola extract has been traditionally used to improve memory in India as an Ayurvedic treatment. Studies confirm that it has a memory-enhancing property, and therefore it can slow down the effects of Alzheimer’s disease, schizophrenia, and dementia.
Eradicates Herpes
Gotu kola, combined with mango, helps treat and eradicate the herpes virus.
Prevents Stomach Upset
Traditionally, Centella Asiatica leaves were used to treat severe pain in the stomach, which we now link to gastric ulcers. This treatment is still considered viable, and the anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties of the leaves can clearly improve the health of the gut and colon.
Detoxifies the Body
Gotu kola has long been known as a mild diuretic and can, therefore, stimulate the release of excess toxins, salts, water, and even fat from the body through urination. This release helps ease tension on the kidneys and generally removes toxins quickly while keeping our energy up and our fluid balance even.
Regulates Blood Pressure
By relieving tension and anxiety in the arteries and blood vessels, gotu kola is able to regulate blood pressure and reduce strain on the cardiovascular system. This protects the heart and prevents diseases like atherosclerosis, heart attacks, and strokes from occurring.
Our Centella Asiatica is a 50:1 concentrated extract.
